# five more to come OR five more coming

I have made up the examples below.

(1) I said to my customer, "You ordered fifteen packages of toilet paper. I'm going to get them for you right now." (After one minute) I said to him, "Here are ten. There are five more to come. I'm going to get the rest. I'll be right back."

Which form of "come" is correct? Thanks.

• They are similar, but I would interpret "coming" with a greater sense of happening immediately. Commented Nov 11, 2023 at 2:52
• However in this case you did say "I'll be right back", which pretty much makes them both identical. Commented Nov 11, 2023 at 2:53
• Assuming that the customer can do simple arithmetic, all you need to say is "Here are ten - I'm just going to fetch the other five". Commented Nov 11, 2023 at 9:04
